the federal government cannot let it be known. but they came out with the most recent figures great 72.5% of african americans now are born out of wedlock. 72.3%. american indians, 66.2%. latinos, 53.3%. white people, still pretty high, 29.1%. for asian people, it is 17.2%. so in other words, seven out of 10, six out of 10, five out of 10 for blacks and american indians and latinos because they are the so-called underrepresented in minority who get racial preferences. and a two out of 10 people are typically have racial problems. not only in terms of education but in terms of crime and whatever social indicators that you want. now, that is the real problem. of course, that is not going to be fixed by racial preferences. thank you.

are talking about as a public figure. in terms of his actual working in the governance, toward the governance of this country ,-com,-com ma again and again i learn from both republicans and democrats that he doesn't have the skill set as lyndon johnson had for instance, how to manipulate the levers of power in washington or ronald reagan who would get get together at the end of the day with tip o'neill, the democratic speaker of the house, have a drink with him, reminisce, tell jokes and then start working out how to get a bill pass. barack obama doesn't seem to know how to do that. he in fact, in private, he's a very introverted ers and who doesn't reach out beyond the small group of chicago operatives whom he has brought with him to the white house. >> opera had tried to ignore the ominous change in tone coming from the obama transition team as barack obama is it not gration drew near oprah's calls to michelle went and returned. instead oprah heard from max devlin that newly appointed white house ceremonies coordinator who told oprah that she needed to talk to him first about the interview.
